How Sump Pumps Works

sump pump

Sump pumps that are used to remove accumulated water from a basement or crawl space utilize automatic water sensors that activate the pump when water levels become too high. On average, sump pumps should be replaced every 7 to 10 years depending on the frequency of use, the volume of water displaced, and the runtime of regular cycles.

Breakdowns occur if pumps are too small for the necessary capacity of water or if components wear out. Sump pump repair, replacement or upgrades become necessary, and Ox Foundation Solutions will return your sump pump to normal service in Birmingham, Hoover, Montgomery, Bessemer, and cities across our AL service area.

On average, sump pumps should be replaced every 7 to 10 years depending on frequency of use, volume of water displaced, and cycle runtimes. Always know how your sump pump works, what signs of breakdown or malfunction to look for, and call Ox Foundation ASAP when you see them. Call (205) 839-7950 or contact us online to learn more and arrange a consultation.

Why Ox For Sump Pumps & How Do They Work?

Sump pumps work not unlike your common houseplants. Wet plant soil drains excess water into a tray or reservoir. When it rains, the ground outside soaks up only so much water. A French or other type of drain, or a sump pump has to re-route the excess water, which flows to the lowest point.

In this case, basements or lowest points on foundations receive the most water, and basement flooding or water damage is a likely consequence. As water seeps or drains into your sump pump pit, it activates and move water to a secondary drain system. As long as the sump pump functions properly and the secondary drain is not blocked, your basement or crawl space avoids flooding and requires less cleanup later.

Ox Foundation Solutions has the experience and expertise to keep your sump pump working efficiently and effectively throughout Alabama during the rainiest seasons. Know how your sump pump works, what signs of breakdown to look for, and call Ox Foundation ASAP when you see them.
